Sibylle Baier – Colour Green (2006) (Full Album)

“Colour Green” is the name of the beautiful only one album of Sibylle Baier – a german singer-songwriter and actress, known by acting and being friends with Wim Wenders. The songs were originally home recorded between 1970 and 1973, but only released in a record in 2006. I’m very happy to share it, although these tunes are already posted separately on youtube. Sibylle is so talent and most of people doesn’t know her songs and, of course, cannot recognise her art. This post is an attempt to provide it.

It’s interesting to know about Sibylle’s life and work, which you can find on her official website here:


Emily Kokal of Warpaint on Sibylle Baier (Interview by Paul Lester in The Guardian)

She’s from Germany, a model and actor who, between 1970 and 1973, recorded a collection of songs on her home reel-to-reel, just her playing her guitar. She had quite a low voice, not the same timbre as Nico but that kind of range. She appeared in the Wim Wenders film Alice in the Cities, then moved to America to raise a family. About 30 years later, her son found her music and made a bunch of mix CDs and gave them out to friends and family. He also gave one to J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr and he gave it to a label who put the album out. It’s called Colour Green and it’s just her and her guitar. The music came from such a pure place; she wasn’t pursuing a career. She’s just a mum. But the music has the classic feel of a Nico or Nick Drake – somebody alone in a room with just their guitar, telling their stories. It’s hauntingly beautiful.
